Lighting Question

  1. Hey guys & girls was wondering about this light I found on CL.
    Guy wants 70, doesn't come with a bulb
    400 Watt Metal Halide System
    thoughts please:D
  2. What's the radius? It looks pretty big. You'd want to use a tri or quad cfl socket with that.
  3. I'll have to ask but it includes a mogul socket
  4. As long as you could do something like this I'd probably take it. But I'd haggle him and try to get it for $50... no use paying more for something someone may be willing to sell for less, right? But yeah, you throw some of these nifty adapter thingies on that mogul socket and get a contraption like this...
  5. I`d spend the extra money and buy a better light set up. That has a built magnetic ballast and they not only get quite hot but also suck up electricity. For $70.00 I think its also over priced for the type of light it is.
  6. CFL`s arent going to fit in that socket, its quite a bit bigger.

  7. put that 70 towards an LED.

    Yeah get led lights cheaper to run and no heat check out my set up
  9. It's an industrial high bay light for a warehouse. That will kick ass over an led. It's still a 400 watt gas lamp so it will put out a little heat. Not too bad for 70 if it came with a lamp but it's worth it. Does it work?
